Volunteer teams paint NSP, Maplewood homes

If you live in a community in the Twin Cities, chances are good you’ve seen a house that has been painted by a Paint-A-Thon team. Over the last 29 years, Paint-A-Thon volunteers have painted 6,300 homes in the seven-county metro area.
Saturday, Aug. 3, was the official “paint day” for the 60 teams that participated in this year’s Paint-A-Thon, a program offered through the Greater Minneapolis Council of Churches. Now in its 29th year, the program caters to low-income seniors and the physically disabled, who may not be able to paint their homes on their own.

The resident, who was supposed to be on a diet of puree-texture food, choked and died April 1 after being served an Easter holiday lunch. The resident did not have any teeth, and her care plan called for attendants to only serve her food the consistency of pudding. Additionally, the report says, the woman had a history of choking on solid foods.

Molestation charges against NSP foster father dropped

In May, Ramsey County prosecutors dismissed two fourth-degree sexual conduct charges against Moua Soua Mouacheupao, 61, of North St. Paul. Mouacheupao was accused of molesting two female minors who were placed under foster care in his home with him and his wife, Sy Vang Mouacheupao.
A document submitted by the prosecution says “the State of Minnesota ... dismisses the (charges) on the grounds that the State is unable to maintain its burden of proof beyond a reasonable doubt at a trial in this matter.”
Mouacheupao has maintained his innocence throughout the ordeal. Over the years, his house on Buhl Avenue has been home to more than 25 foster children ages 2-21.

District 622 programs aim to keep students in school ... or get them back

The North St. Paul-Maplewood-Oakdale School District is launching new programs this fall so that students with young children and former students have a better chance to earn their high school diploma.
A daycare center for young children whose mothers are students will open in September at the District Education Center in North St. Paul. It is a partnership with the YMCA and designed to prevent young parents from dropping out. It will offer parenting classes as well, said community education director Chuck Erickson.
The district will also begin offering another new program at Harmony Learning Center this fall so adults between the ages of 18 to 21 who didn’t complete high school will have an added opportunity to earn their diploma.
